8.5X18 ET35 Brabus Monoblock V's with 225/40ZR18 Dunlop SP Sport 9000's on W124...



I think the smoked/red tail lights of '94+ W124's would look better...but that is just my taste...are those Brabus tips??? I don't see the Brabus logo etched onto them...and the mesh covering over the tips:

Nice wheels, don't like the kit (skirts) and think the totally red taillights look rather good in a black benz. I had IN-PRO red taillights in my former white 190D as well, it is a pity that the reverse lights look pink...

The fenders are flared? What is stuck on the rear screen in the upper corners?

Keep sharing these pics with us!! (where do you find them?)

greetingz,

MBenz,

I *think* this is a Brabus bodykit for the W124...although I could be wrong...so the front spoiler, side skirts, rear valence, and I'm guessin' the exhaust are all Brabus...I like the front spoiler, but the side skirts and the rear end is somewhat "weak"...the rear valence lacks the deep inward cut that makes the AMG rear valence so nice.

Somebody at http://www.benzsport.com mentioned that the two little protruding pieces on both sides of the upper part of the rear window are TV antennas.

I actually get the pictures from friends at http://www.bimmer.org who feed me links to modified W124, and I just browse through them and find links to other links...I thought people here might like to see what are the possible modifications to their W124's...

Those "things" on the rear window are diversity antennas. He probably has an LCD screen in the car and uses those to get TV reception.

Wow... Not to rip another guy's car(especially one that looks that good!) But who would do all that to a 280? I'd buy a V8 personally. But all that aside, geezuz that car looks sharp

Jason,

I doubt whether that car is an US vehicle...
There are a lot of continents on this world (approx. all minus one) where the average engine only counts 4-cylinders...
In europe the 280E would be considered as a car with a rather potential engine (we even had a 200 without E).

greetingz,

Wow looks great but its a little excessive. I like the 17's, Have you ever tried city driving with 18's One trip and you'll be kicking yourself.

flipsyde that W140 Coupe looks great! Its my second favorite pic. That speedo pic is #1 . You know what I mean!

I can't see the "dope"
but based on the look, I have no doubt he's dealing it from the back seat.

DuckMuck,

What!? 280E! No kidding!. I wish I could put those bulky wheels on my 95 E320. They are just too wide.

Vey Nice Car!!
Pras.
